how long before cpu damages from overheating

My cpu fan molex cable once disconnected and i left cpu running without fan like 1-2 minute. I have i7 3770k, which has max operating temperature 69 if i remember correctly. Just hypotetically, how long it takes for cpu to damage itself, after exceeding maximum temperature.
About Gpu i was pushing it even to the 95C, because i read 95 is maximum temperature for 780. Because thermal throttling, it won't allow higher frequency and i needed to overclock it. I even read some article i think it was on nvidia that it likes hot and 90-93 even increase perfomance. Now i read it should not exceed 85C. Even max can be up to 105C for some cards.
